    Notes (4)

    • The french title of the episode, 'La Rue D'Awakening' means 'The Awakening Street' in English.

    • This episode first aired in the U.S. on Feb. 17, 2003

    • The recurring dolphin appears as Joan's tatoo.

    Trivia (16)

    • JFK:Nothing bad ever happens to the Kennedy's. Many people believe in the Kennedy Curse. The family has suffered a high amount of improbable tragedy. Two political assasinations, and a plane crash just to name a few.

    • Goof: Joan is never seen taking off her left boot or sock. Her footwear is on when Abe enters his house, and during the course of their conversation, it is removed from her foot.

    • The clock in Scudworth's office is stuck at 12.25 during the entire episode.

    • Goof: When Scudworth opens his office door, Scangrade is blocking the door with his body. A second later, Scangrade has somehow squeezed through the doorway and is in the hall. Given the massiveness of ScanGrade and the regular size of the doorway, this seems improbable.

    • Most of the clones address their foster-parents as foster-parents, not actual parents. Gandhi is the only clone who calls his foster-parents 'Mom' and 'Dad'.

    Allusions (4)

    • Grease The start of the drag race is likely a tribute to the 1978 movie "Grease", where there is a similar drag race scene, right down to the neckerchief Cleo is wearing.

    • Gandhi: Abe, remember how I was so excited about seeing the movie American Pie that I couldn't sleep the night before? And remember that scene where the guy has sex with the pie? Well, I don't. Because I fell asleep in the theater. American Pie is a popular teen movie released by Universal and directed by the Weitz brothers. The plot consisted of four male high school seniors who make a make a pact to lose their virginities by prom night. To prepare for sex, the main character (played by Jason Biggs) "has sex" with a "warm apple pie," what third base is said to feel like by this character's friend.

    • Fight Club
      The montage at the end of the episode where Gandhi remembers his times with the imaginary "creepy trucker" is likely a tribute to a similar montage in the movie Fight Club or the Sixth Sense.

    • Scangrade: You can't fill in two ovals! NOOOO!!!! (explodes) Scangrade is destroyed when Mr. Bultertron asks him a multiple choice question that in Scangrade's mind has two answers, this causes a logic error in him and he explodes. This is a spoof of Nomad from the old Star Trek series, a probe gone horribly ary that was bent on sterilizing anything that was imperfect; with itself being the only perfect thing. Capt. Kirk fools Nomad in the same way by arguing that Nomad is imperfect and that he must destroy himself; this creates a logic error and Nomad eventually self-destructs.
